During my time in the HRT program, I had the opportunity to debut the Little Vol Walk during homecoming 2010 by working with the UT Alumni Department. The relationship between, UT, WalMart and Coca Cola offered me a chance to be a member of the planning committee for a nonprofit fundraiser for Holly Warwick’s, “Champions for a Cause” foundation. TN4PINK debuted in April 2011 as a motorcycle charity event where participants rode from Memphis, TN to Knoxville, TN. During this time, I presented event logistics and ideas to the regional VPs of Walmart and Coca Cola Corp to earn their support of the event.
Currently, I am an Event Marketing Specialist at Canon USA headquarters in Melville, New York. I oversee and coordinate all logistics for VIP events, National Trade Show booth participation and support the Northeast Sales Team in customer promotions and hospitality. I graduated from the HRT program in May 2011 and landed my job in just 8 months after graduation, thanks to my degree and the experiences afforded to me thanks to the UT HRT program.” Brittany Zbikowski, ‘11
